December Memories TN Style – FYC


This year I’ve decided that along with my 6×8 December Daily I wanted to do a TN album of December memories. Why do both? Seems a bit much? Perhaps, but I thought it would be fun to have an album to document little things (like decorations, mugs, treats) that I really like. My DD (December daily) is focused on the family, mostly on the girls, but the TN will be focused on me, not that there’s a lot of exciting things that happen to me in December but I do take a lot of random Christmas themed pictures, so they will have a home in my TN.


I decided to do a bit of prep work on my TN using the amazing Remember December collection by FYC. Sadly this collection has sold out, so I really hope you were able to get your hands on this exquisite collection!! I wanted to add a bit of texture to the beginning of the album, so I removed the staples and added a velum insert. I think I will repeat this throughout the album as I love using velum in my December projects.

I opted for a simple design, the chipboard accent (still available here) paired with a year stamp (also available here).  The number Christmas tree (available here) was the ideal focal point for the cover page. It paired beautifully with a puffy sticker (again FYC) and a short paragraph which sets the mood for my December TN. I’m excited for the Holiday Season to begin, I know it will be so much fun to create random entries in my TN.

I've been part of the scrapbook industry for over 10 years. My love of paper started at a very young age when I started hoarding a collection of notepads and fruit scented pens. My love of scrapbooking and memory keeping evolved when I became a mother. Over the course of my creative career, I've had the pleasure of designing for various manufactures; I currently design for Ali Edwards and Gossamer Blue. My style is eclectic with a flair for mixing embellishments, creating layers and a love for white space. As of two years ago, I shifted her creative focus to documenting our family’s daily activities with Project Life.

  1. Your first page is gorgeous! I’m thinking of doing a TN notebook in Dec. Do you make your own books? How many pages does a book have? If you don’t use them all, what do you with the extra pages? Thanks in advance for your help!


    1. Hi Helen! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, glad you like my TN. I use premade TNs but I’ve also done my own, which is very easy. As for the premade they usually have 30 pages, by making your own you would have more control on how many pages and inserts you could add. I usually use all of the pages, but if you happen to have extra pages you could use them for extra pics, no journaling needed. Just a thought. Good luck with your TN!


  2. Hello Melanie –
    I love how you used the vellum……I assume that the “back” is somewhere else in the TN? If you take the staples out, how do you keep everything together?


    1. Hi Jen,
      Thank you for taking the time to leave a question. Yes I did remove the staples, I inserted the TN in a TN holder, the elastic in the holder keeps everything in place.
